Launch of the “Alliance of Severo Ochoa Centres and Maria de Maeztu Units of Excellence”

19/10/2017

The Secretary of State for R&D+i, Carmen Vela, chaired the kickoff meeting of the new Severo Ochoa and Maria Maeztu Alliance of Excellence. The alliance’s target is to internationally promote and strengthen the centres and units accredited with this distinction, to give their research a higher profile.

Magnetic electrodes increase solar cell efficiency

Organic spintronics
29/09/2017

NanoGUNE researchers have developed a photovoltaic device that is 14% more efficient thanks to the magnetism of its contacts. The device is also capable of providing alternating current directly.

nanoGUNE recives the María de Maeztu distinction

19/09/2017

Ikerbasque Professor Luis Hueso, accompanied by the Director General of nanoGUNE, José M. Pitarke, has collected the distinction Maria de Maeztu for research excellence on behalf of the Basque research center in nanoscience. This distinction will bring nanoGUNE a financial envelope of 500,000 euros per year for four years.

2017 Magnetism Roadmap

13/09/2017

With the co-authorship of nanoGUNE’s Nanomagnetism group leaders Dr. Andreas Berger and Dr. Paolo Vavassori, the Journal of Physics D – Applied Physics just published the 2017 Magnetism Roadmap. As a whole, the 2017 Magnetism Roadmap, which is an Open Access article, is intended to act as a reference point and guideline for emerging research directions in modern magnetism.

San Sebastian to the NSMB cover

31/08/2017 to 26/09/2017

The Nanobiomechanics group of CIC nanoGUNE takes San Sebastian to the cover of Nature Structural and Molecular Biology. The picture introduces a research that infers the size of animals dating back 100-350 million years ago from resurrected proteins.

La Caixa fellowships program for Postdocs and predocs

BECASCAIXA
29/08/2017

NanoGUNE is searching for outstanding early-stage and junior researchers interested in applying for a research fellowship within the "La Caixa" funding programs. The JuniorLeader program call for postdoctoral researchers is now open, and the INPhINIT program call for predoctoral students will be open soon.

The size of animals dating back 100-350 million years ago inferred from resurrected proteins

04/07/2017

The prestigious journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology has published a piece of research conducted by CIC nanoGUNE researchers. They have experimentally reconstructed titin fragments from their common ancestors and measured their mechanochemical properties. They have discovered a correlation between the properties of the protein measured on a nanoscale and animal size.

Future materials are becoming 'topological’

01/07/2017

A tremendously thin layer of wolfram and tellurium has turned out to be an exotic type of material that physicists have dubbed a ‘topological insulator’. NanoGUNE has participated in the study published in Nature Physics. The physical properties of this two-dimensional material confers it a promising future in the emerging field of spintronics.

Ultra-compact phase modulators based on graphene plasmons

27/06/2017

A collaborative group of researchers achieve light phase modulation with a footprint 30 times smaller than the light wavelength.
